The carousel. We avoid walking past it at the zoo just so we don’t get asked. They know what the answer is always going to be: “Maybe next time Grammy comes she’ll pay for you to ride again.” (No pressure Mom.)
Today was different though. Today we said yes. And every ear to ear grin made it worth it. And at the end of the day, we rode it again. And it was worth it all over again.
But now, it’s back to the normal carousel avoidance.
That way, when we eventually say yes again, it’ll be extra special all over again.
